resident jamal khashoggi in istanbul and the u.s. is still chasing answers i know nothing right and i know what everybody else knows nothing the u.s. state department insists it is pressuring the saudis were not going to make any judgments about what had happened to him the united states is certainly concerned about his whereabouts a senior officials at the state department have spoken with saudi officials through diplomatic channels about the matter we call on the government of saudi arabia to conduct a thorough trant and transparent investigation at a washington conference discussing come to events in saudi arabia concerned for the journalist disappearance bubbled under the surface one human rights activist says the u.s. must take much stronger action than just expressing concern i'd like to see the u.s. demand that the saudis produce him and if they can't produce him produce the detailed explanation including documentation c.c.t.v. footage whatever is necessary to demonstrate what did happen to him. full compass forged close links with saudi arabia his first foreign trip was to the kingdom when

1:06 am
consequences for these kind of actions and that american support is not unconditional there's growing pressure on the saudis to come up with answers about what actually happened in istanbul and if they do and there's a growing number of politicians in the united states they see that must significantly change the relationship between the two countries alan fischer al-jazeera washington. outgoing u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley has ruled out running against donald trump in the twenty twenty presidential election after announcing his shock resignation on tuesday trump as already mentioned former adviser donna powell as a possible replacement for haley but appeared to rule out his daughter ivanka from the role mike hanna reports from united nations. many in the security council disagreed with the policies that the us representative championed again but during
1:07 am
eighteen months at the un nikki haley engendered a great deal of respect forming warm personal relationships with those she supported as well as those she so forcibly opposed the secretary general had a truly very good working relationship with her he worked. to get through some of the toughest moments i think between the u.s. and the u.n. some diplomat said privately spoken about haleigh's loss of influence within the trumpet ministration in particular following the appointment of mike pump aoa secretary of state and former u.n. ambassador john bolton as national security adviser but president trump says discussion with haley about her possible resignation had started as long as six months ago and unlike other members who left his administration he keeps open the possibility of her rejoining it we're all happy for you in one way but we hate to lose you hopefully you'll be coming back at some point but if you want to just be

a different capacity you can a big if are all in here that are going to ask about twenty twenty no i'm not running for two hundred twenty and i can promise you when i'll be doing is campaigning for this one so i look forward to supporting the president in the next elections the question now who's going to be the next ambassador to head up the u.s. mission just over the road president trump says he'll announce a successor in the next two to three weeks possibly even sooner signaling that he wants to make the announcement before those crucial midterm elections in just under a month well did is certainly a person i would consider as he is under consideration and the president's daughter ivanka i think given you would be incredible that visit reunite you you know what i think or because you'd be used to that business. even though i'm not sure there's anybody more confident in the world but that's ok but but we are looking at numerous people the discussion put on hold as the president has yet another

1:10 am
he hadn't met with the family and had perhaps met them in passing at public events now the issue for many south africans is that the minister had lied especially considering that he is in an important or was in an important portfolio while trusted and out till that point was credible now these revelations of course have brought into question his credibility integrity as well as his character and gotten in a did apologize soon after his testimony to south africa and saying that he shouldn't have met with that family it shouldn't have met with the good times and if he had done that it should have been within the finance ministry and that this was an error of judgment and sometime in it despite being of well liked and respected specifically because he had according to many south african save the country from what would have been a disastrous nuclear deal that south africa couldn't afford it some are very sad to

1:12 am
suppliers are buying less it's little shortages and many disappointed customers it's up to the very real disappointing because everything is at a standstill gondolin a business you can do anything in the world we can grow fruit the worsening economic crisis is compounded by a critical shortage of cash the last time lines were long was back in two thousand and eight some people would sleep in their cars for days hoping to get fuel government officials are telling zimbabweans not to panic but some people say they are worried. in some places feel has started arriving but it's still not enough. others are stocking up on groceries these days bread is in short supply and usually doesn't last long on the shelves in some stores customers are limited to two items per person to prevent hoarding and panic buying. stock or.
1:13 am
even. behavior persons a change of people uncertain of the future. certainties of. a very big. price is a tripled in just a few days it's a question of increasing capacities it's a question of my future as my fear. because it's just it is sage and demand it's speculation that's causing some panic buying but again these things they will be. but increasing production needs foreign currency. they don't have enough of some importance by dollars on the black market at a premium some that could be more frustration and hardship before things get better . still to come on the program two countries one alphabet

1:15 am
showers or even rain here is still exist in western australia over the city itself i suspect but it's drifting further into was the wheat belt and we've got showers showing up in northern territory as well interesting so because he's a decent rain in the next couple of days some of it is going to just going to go across the tasman sea and catch south all and it's already showing up as clouds you can see probably banneker blowing off the alps and the rain itself comes in during wednesday a nice warm nineteen degrees in christchurch preferred effect warming this but the rain is going to move slightly north has the wind direction will change you lose the furnace victim as the rain treats up western side of north island and probably reaches christ church the temperature drops here to eleven. from cutting edge medical technology talks it could be. the development of march so

you can go to advances in the most difficult regions of the world. and you know the worst. and innovative solutions. to make a difference with this word get it sure was sold the cure. and one of the top stories here. turkish security sources have told us they've identified three places of interest related to the disappearance of a saudi journalist. says he plans to speak to saudi arabian officials about the
1:17 am
case. outgoing u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley has ruled out running against donald trump in the twenty twenty presidential election after announcing her resignation on tuesday. and south africa's finance minister has resigned after admitting to meeting members of the family who've been accused of corruption. a suicide bomber has killed an opposition politician in afghanistan's helmand province saturday mohammed and seven all those were killed in the explosion during a meeting at his home in lashkar gah on monday the taliban issued a statement condemning the upcoming parliamentary elections. the number of severely malnourished children in afghanistan is on the rise with aid organizations warning it could reach two million by the end of the year countries are sending in food but that's only half the battle as tony betty reports in herat armed groups like the taliban are preventing food from being delivered to those in need. is seven
1:18 am
months old she weighed less than seven kilograms when she entered this camp almost half the weight or what a child her age should be. she's one of a growing number of severely malnourished children who are suffering from lack of food and hunt hygienic living conditions they have fled to camps like these in herat their families are too poor and helpless to survive without outside help a family traveled three hundred fifty kilometers to herat to escape hunger and conflict it's an all too familiar story in afghanistan more than forty percent of children under the age of five have stunted growth through lack of food and poor nutrition and ten percent are wasting away to skin and bones it leaves them prone to illness and disease and sometimes an early death by the end of this year it is estimated that around two million children could suffer from severe malnutrition.
1:19 am
the u.s. is the largest food donor here this year it has donated nearly seventy million dollars to support food and nutrition programs but the food lifeline can easily be cut afghanistan always needs more food but the question is how to get it through to the people who really need it the volatile security situation means that one armed group or another has to give agreement with the prize they get through is not always easy. the terrain is difficult often crisscrossing territory controlled by armed factions food and medical convoys are dependent on the permission from these groups no security means no food deliveries more as are sorry we had to leave our area because there was no food coming the taliban stopped it i don't know why instances of convoys being stopped have reduced in the last few years but they still happen that access is essential for mobile medical teams to help needy civilians aid workers have been attacked and killed in the past and they too need protection from police and i select our next guest to get an economic plan and we
1:20 am
can go everywhere because areas are to priska and then we can help children. it's uncertain if stopping aid is a deliberate policy of armed groups or it's an inevitable consequence of this long running conflict my call to all the parties to the conflict is give people a break they've really had enough this has been going on for nearly forty years for different reasons but you know there are a lot of people here who know nothing but war and they're yearning for peace and they deserve that unless they sell induction in that conflict and improvement in terms of library wants to support communities this intuition i think to do it in and we mainly become much was. happily not for up santa who wages increased by seven hundred grams in just a week soon she'll no longer be an acutely malnourished baby she doesn't know it

their unique alphabet invented nearly six hundred years ago by king say john the great is worth celebrating it was created with the aim of allowing everybody to communicate with everybody else in korea through the written word and the spoken word but the seven decades of separation after the korean war has not helped that process. the division has been causing the divergence of the meaning and even the usage of the language between the south and the north. our different events visitors have been learning that while north korea has been holding on to more traditional words the south has been adopting more loanwords from other languages for example this in the south it's called bona. but in the north it's. quite literally finger ring bread and when you take a shower in the morning you use what translates as pear water served or in the south or simply sand well with people from the north on the south already not
